In typical a post-apocalyptic plot, players are usually portrayed as last hope for humanity but roguelike shooter Nuclear Throne by Indie developer/publisher Vlambeer wants you to assume characteristics of a mutated monster.

Mankind has gone extinct long ago and Earth is now a wasteland populated with gruesome creatures. In order to push against numerous herds of enemies you can either pick some heavy weaponry or grow extra limbs using radiation.

Though Cyberpunk 2077 is coming next year and has role-playing elements in first-person perspective, you can have a somewhat similar experience in a futuristic setting of RUINER, which is a top-down shooter game.

An overhead shooter title from developer Reikon Games and publisher Devolver Digital, players take role of a masked protagonist named "Puppy", who is led by rogue hacker to eliminate a man but his objective is shifted midways.

Slay the Spire on Humble Monthly Bundle

Roguelike deck-building game Slay the Spire and tactical shooter title Squad is Early Unlock games in Humble Monthly Bundle for September.

What if a game would cook up a mixture of roguelike gameplay elements with deck-building card game? It is likely that developer studio MegaCrit had the same thoughts when they came up with Slay the Spire for Early Access in 2017.

Of course, Humble Bundle has seen potential for this indie title and decides to become its publisher. Earlier this year, the game saw a full release on multiple platforms and is now included in Humble Monthly Bundle for September 2019.

Not only this subscription model is an ideal one for PC gamers but also pretty convenient since there were not many monthly services offering you bunch of games that you can redeem with codes and own in your Steam library forever.

Although Xbox Game Pass for PC and Game Pass Ultimate service offers you a large collection of over 100 great games, they don't come close to Humble Monthly because those titles eventually leave their platform after a certain time.
